Dear Executive :
No government on earth has to feed 20 % of the World Population except China. Very few countries on earth have more than 5000 years of ancient history like China. With such unique, different environment and long complicated history and cultural background from other countries, the modern China has designed their own way of Democracy of electing their Delegates of the National Congress. China's Communist Party is now in fact a Democratic Socialist party. Even some of the western think tanks had acknowledged it.
China's Own Style of Democracy:
The 16th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is proposed to be convened in Beijing as of November 8 2002. All delegates to attend the congress have been elected. How are delegates of the CPC National Congress elected?
Generally, they are elected according to the democratic centralism principles: To know more, please simply click the following important article and all of their other great improvements in Democracy in China: http://www.china.org.cn/english/2002/Sep/43936.htm

Votes Buying in Taiwan???
Taiwan claims that it has "democracy?!" However, there is some big doubts and questions. Because many of our close friends in Taiwan have long been complaining about the "Votes Buying" in Taiwan! This questionable "money politics" democracy has become a cover for Taiwan's leader Chen Shui Bien to convince Western countries for his apparent agenda for "independence".
However Taiwan is part of China.
After World War II ended, the "Cairo Declaration" issued by China, the United States and Great Britain on December 1, 1943 stated : "It is the purpose of the three great Allies that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the First World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa [Taiwan] and the Pescadores [Penghu], shall be restored to China."
The Potsdam Proclamation signed by China, the United States and Great Britain on 26 July 1945 (subsequently adhered to by the Soviet Union) reiterated: "The terms of the Cairo Declaration shall be carried out." "Even the languages spoken in Taiwan are either Chinese Mandarin or southern Fujian dialect and the Hakka dialect of Fujian Province." (note: Fujian Province is located at the southeast part of China across the strait from Taiwan island.) (Source: http://www.china.org.cn/english/7774.htm)
